Latin 2-4 Lesson: Music and Manuscripts


Watch a video of a Latin lesson that incorporates music:

In this multilevel lesson, students learn to distinguish between translation and interpretation in a classical language class. While the Latin IV students translate a passage from Vergil's Aeneid, Latin II-III students discuss how Mozart's opera Il sogno di Scipione reflects themes from Cicero's Somnium Scipionis. The class then comes together to create their own versions of Latin manuscripts and make historical connections to Roman culture.
